1939 Y-JOB Experimental

The interior has not been taken care of very well. At least it did not have the same fate as most ending in the scrap yard.
March 19th,2008 shows the Y-Job in New York.

Here is the famous Y-JOB experimental test car. This vehicle was used as a rolling test bed by Buick for ten years. The top photo shows the clay model, bottom left on the roof of the G.M. building in Detroit and at bottom right in it's original configuration in 1939. This was designer Harley Earl's personal car during world war II. You can still see this car sometimes at the Buick research center at the Sloan museum in Flint, Michigan. It is owned by the G.M. Tech center in Warren Michigan.
